Will there be food and beverages available?

Yes. Aquatica’s is open for business including restaurants and concessions!

When do I get my incentives?

Incentives will be distributed at the Plunge.  If you are unable to attend the Plunge, then incentives will be mailed to you following the Plunge.

If I can’t collect all my “offline” pledges before the plunge, what do I do?

We can only register you for the amount of donations you bring with you to the Plunge, and the funds you’ve raised online through Fundraising Pro. Separate checks are acceptable and should be made payable to Special Olympics Florida. Please indicate your name in the subject line so we can give you proper credit.
